Professional Activities

Dr. Christine Seroogy is tenured professor in the Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Rheumatology. She is also the assistant medical director of the clinical research unit which is supported by the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR). Seroogy has co-led the NIH funded Wisconsin Infant Study Cohort (WISC) since its inception in 2013.

Clinical Interests

Seroogy oversees the Primary Immunodeficiency Clinic at the American Family Children’s Hospital. She has also been a consultant for the Wisconsin Newborn Screening Severe Combined Immune Deficiency program since 2008.

Research Interests

Seroogy’s research program is aimed at characterizing early life immune development using unique birth cohorts and multi-omic technologies. The ultimate goal of this work is to define the mechanistic underpinnings of microbial and immune interfaces which modulate risk for allergic inflammation to inform future primary prevention strategies. Seroogy has authored over 90 peer-reviewed manuscripts and is a contributing author for several textbooks in the field of allergy and immunology.
